Samhain

Also known as: Halloween; Day of the Dead; Feast of Spirits; Third Harvest; Samonios; All Saint's Eve; Martinmas; Celtic New Year; Samana; Feast of Pamona; Vigil of Todos; Santos

Samhain, the Wiccan New Year, falls on October 31st. Wiccans say farewell to the God, but celebrate the knowledge of His return at Yule. Samhain is a time for reflection, of looking back over the previous year. It is also the time to come to terms with the phenomena of death. On Samhain, the veil between the worlds of the living and dead is thin, allowing for communication between the worlds.
